Libertine is, by definition, a hotel lobby bar. Situated on the first floor of the boutique hotel, all the way in the back, it’s a lounge-y space, dim lighting, varied seating, well-stocked bar. It’s the kind of space where one could just as naturally hold a work meeting over lunch, or grab a drink solo. It’s the kind of place that isn’t just for the hotel guests, that isn’t just for travelers. It’s cool enough to just be a bar. That happens to be in a hotel.
During the day, Libertine functions like a casual restaurant and cafe with a moody chic ambience. In the evenings it transforms into a lively cocktail bar with live music. If you’re not feeling cocktails, they also do natural wines and craft beers.

Amount of time to spend: it’s nice for a short break (especially on a hot day), or for a longer leisurely meal or drinks
